The UNC Charlotte Undergraduate Research Conference (URC) showcases research projects completed by undergraduate students of all levels from all colleges and departments in the University. This year, the conference will take place on Friday, April 25 in the Barnhardt Student Activity Center from 7:30 AM - 5:30 PM.
The work presented ranges from in-class projects to year-long honors theses and everything in between. The type of research varies depending on the discipline, and includes diverse topics such as philosophical analysis to hands-on data collection in a lab or in the field.
UNC Charlotte’s Collegiate Recovery Community will be the beneficiary of the inaugural Charlotte Heroes in Recovery 6K Run/Walk scheduled for 8:00 AM, Saturday, June 21, at Reedy Creek Park.
According to its website, Heroes in Recovery is a movement ignited by Foundations Recovery Network and the widespread community to eliminate the social stigma that keeps individuals with addiction and mental health issues from seeking help.
"This race is the type of community event that draws attention to the important work that we do every day," stated Carol Rose, marketing specialist for the Collegiate Recovery Community. "We work hard to break down the cultural stereotypes and stigmas associated with addiction, and we want people to celebrate recovery and put the spotlight on healthy lifestyles."
